Crime and homelessness has spiraled out of control here turning the area into another leftist blue city sh*thole like Chicago. One of many reasons why I plan to leave.

I don't think most people are concerned about SVB. And there are tech layoffs across the US, not just in California. Feb 2023 Dell laid off 6,650 in Round Rock TX, Jan 2023 IBM laid off 3,300 in New York. And losing overpaid tech employees in California is probably a blessing, we have too many people here anyway.

And crime in Sacramento has not spiraled out of control, unfortunately the Sheriff's Dept doesn't release stats except for the mandatory FBI data which is made public a year after it's submitted but here are some from Sac PD https://www.cityofsacramento.org/Pol...ime-Statistics There was a big push a few months ago to get the Supervisors to build a whole new jail so there was a lot of talking heads telling us how crime is through the roof and the only thing that will fix it is a new jail. And it's not only law enforcement who wants to have shiny new bigger and better jails, it's also builders who will rake in a lot of money building a massive new jail.

Crime is up everywhere Democrats have congregated in large numbers. The pendulum was swinging left after smart phones with cameras became ubiquitous, and Americans realized policing is alot uglier and shady than their middle class white up bringing led them to believe.

Most who work in law enforcement or survived the 80's and 90's in big cities knew better. Sometimes cops have to break the law to enforce the law. And sometimes there is collateral damage when you have a war on crime. That's just how it is.

So now we are having a retro 1970's experience. Where criminals are the victims and cops are the bad guys. We will scale back policing, bring back revolving dooe justice, and spend a bunch of money on programs that won't work. Because at the end of the day, government agencies are run by people who have social connections, not folks who believe in the mission.

And eventually enough people will get hurt (after a **** show Newsome presidency) that a hard shift to the right will occur. People will have forgotten all about George Floyd, just like the 80's when they forgot about college hippes amd Civil igjts marchers getting their skulls cracked in the 1960's. Folks will start backing the BOYS IN BLUE, and will demand leaders clean **** up.

Most of what you posted is incorrect and some of it makes no sense. I worked in law enforcement and never had to break the law to enforce the law, not sure where you got that idea. And while large cities tend to have Democratic Mayors, a mayor can't do much either way to influence the crime rate, that's just a cheesy way around admitting that there is more violent crime in Republican voting states.

Quote:
"murder rates are far higher in Trump-voting red states than Biden-voting blue states. And sometimes, murder rates are highest in cities with Republican mayors. Jacksonville, a city with a Republican mayor, had 128 more murders in 2020 than San Francisco, a city with a Democrat mayor, despite their comparable populations." https://www.thirdway.org/report/the-...murder-problem

I guess that depends on what you call "a lot" I am aware of two both in 2022.

Not really. This type of stuff is happening in nearly every major city. Crime is out of control everywhere that is not rural America.
